Falls need to be taken seriously

We were saddened and angry to read about another student at a University of Washington fraternity  who fell from a third-story window to the alley below and is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center. How many falls is it going to take before the University of Washington, the Seattle Police Department, and the fraternity administrators and alumni stop turning a blind eye to these tragic, senseless, accidents? The falls you hear about are quickly swept under the rug until the next one happens — and it will. When will there be some adult supervision in the fraternities like the sororities have?
We hate to see another family endure the pain and sorrow of this senseless tragedy. We can only hope and pray that this young student survives and recovers. Unfortunately, our son, Brett, did not.

Cascade High School Food Drive


The Cascade High School Food Drive is an incredible event!  Brett and Megan enjoyed their work with the food drive while in high school. For the past 10 years, the Jensens have continued to contribute to the CHS Food Drive, by donating turkeys for each family.

Gratitude to all who made it such a success

On Aug. 24, the Brett Jensen Memorial Walk and Run 5 was held at Legion Memorial Park in North Everett. The light rain did not detract from the gathering of family, friends, athletes and community members to celebrate Brett’s life, raise money to continue awarding scholarships to local high school seniors, and have some fun.

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank the many volunteers, the Foundation committee, the city of Everett, the Everett Parks and Recreation Department, and the individual and business sponsors for all of their love and support to make this event a huge success. Also, we would like to thank Joe Cronin and Steve Bertrand, head coaches of the Cascade High School football and cross country teams, respectively, for their participation.

In 10 years the Brett Jensen Memorial Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $90,000 in scholarships. Brett’s Walk and Run enables us to continue to keep Brett’s memory alive and help students continue their education at a four-year university or a community or vocational/technical college.

Next year’s walk and run is scheduled for Aug. 23, 2014. Please mark your calendars.
